OnePlus has something to announce on November 15 (likely the OnePlus 3T)
Not long after Qualcomm revealed that a new OnePlus smartphone would be released soon, today, OnePlus itself said that it's definitely got something new for us. Most probably, the company is getting ready to announce the rumored OnePlus 3T, though we now know that the handset will be unveiled on November 15, not on November 14 (as previously assumed).

Both OnePlus and Qualcomm are confirming that the upcoming device will be powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor. In the teaser video that you can see below, OnePlus mentions a Snapdragon 821 with a 2.35 GHz quad-core architecture, while also seemingly hinting at the phone's name: OnePlus 3T. Of course, the T-7 that shows up in the clip is just a countdown to November 15, but this could be seen as an indirect confirmation that the rumored OnePlus 3T name is correct.

For now, OnePlus isn't saying anything else about its new smartphone. If previously leaked info is to be believed, the new device will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p display - just like the OnePlus 3, though we may be talking about an LCD panel, not an AMOLED one. The new Snapdragon 821 processor will make the OnePlus 3T a bit faster than the Snapdragon 820-based OnePlus 3, while also likely improving battery life. Other novelties should include Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, and an enhanced 16 MP rear camera.

We don't know if the OnePlus 3T will look exactly like the OnePlus 3, but we'll find out in one week.

Would people really spend more for as little as 10% efficiency?

I hope it isn't just a oneplus 3 with better processor. That's just a waste of resources, and will slow down the software development of the oneplus 3.

It's essentially a OnePlus 3, but with an LCD display, as OnePlus is unable to meet the high demand of the OnePlus 3, due to shortage of AMOLED panels. http://www.phonearena.com/news/OnePlus-3-production-could-be-scrapped-permanently-new-model-incoming_id86487 OnePlus has stopped the production of OnePlus 3, and will release this OnePlus 3T will an LCD display, to meet the demand which is likely to increase.

Except the fact that oneplus CEO himself said he won't be using LCD in Oneplus phones anytime soon. If it's a phone, it will have AMOLED. Either way, my concern makes sense since it will double the software effort for them and halve the speed of updates. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Future-OnePlus-smartphones-will-continue-to-use-Optic-AMOLED-displays_id86540

See my post #11 bro. I wasn't aware the OnePlus CEO said he won't be using LCD any time soon. Sorry, I went by what was reported on the 3rd paragraph of the link I posted in my post #7.

If they're having trouble keeping up with OnePlus 3 orders due to AMOLED shortages, the only way this won't be LCD is that if this thing is actually cannibalizing the original OP3's screens. As for software, I'll rely in XDA-Developers as they're just about as stable as OnePlus' releases

Haven't been seeing a lot of stable ROMs on XDA for oneplus 3. All the CM14/14.1 ROMs are unofficial,/have bugs. And even the stable ones have a few features. Missing like FLAC playback. Not to mention most of them have s**tty camera. XDA is mostly unreliable and overrated. Most of the ROMs are pure junk from a stability standpoint. XDA is operated by devs who work on theur freetime. You can't expect quality software from them. I'm using the community builds from oneplus and they are amazing. Fast, stable and have a lot of new features. If they release the oneplus 3T and slow down the development of the 3, I'm done with this company and will go back to Samsung again.

I stay away from CM based ROMs. I usually go with stock based ROM like SLIM for my Z3C, or go with the stock ROM plus a highly stable custom kernel. I usually install apps like Viper4Android or xposed to make the changes I want. But I agree, stock based ROMs that won't ruin the camera are the only way to go.
